Weather affects our daily lives.The elements of weather: rain, wind, fog, ice and snow affect the operation and flight of an airplane. In this program, NASA and FAA researchers will introduce students to math, science, and weather; demonstrate how these elements influence flight; and show how NASA and FAA research is used to limit the effects of these elements on flight. Students will examine: the tools, techniques, and technologies used by engineers and scientists to detect these and other... Topics: NASA, aviation, aeronautics, weather
In “The Case of the Phenomenal Weather”, students can join the tree house detectives as they plan a trip to the Caribbean and encounter problems trying to predict the weather. In this case the tree house detectives will learn about violent storms such as hurricanes and tornadoes, weather fronts, global wind patterns and climates. While solving the case, they will discover that predicting the weather is not predictable at all! To license this film and get a higher quality version for... Topics: NASA, weather

Created by Cenco in 1961, this film discusses radioactive fallout and describes the types of radiation involved, how such radiation spreads, and how it affects living matter. Explains what is being done to understand and solve the problems associated with nuclear radiation. In this era, the health effects of fallout were not well understood. This film makes an earnest attempt to discuss fallout and makes several important points about how dangerous it can be. At this time public sentiment was...
